Government Documents

Overview of Collection

The UWSP Library is a depository for both the U.S. government and the State of Wisconsin. The majority of the collection is on the sixth floor of the library and is open during regular library hours. 

For assistance, please contact the Circulation Desk or a reference librarian.

As the world's largest publisher, the U.S. Government Publishing Office issues publications on almost every conceivable topic. Our collection contains historic materials, as well as materials on current events and scientific research. 

Students of history, political science, education, and the natural sciences will find a wealth of primary source material in government documents. Much of this material is available online and in print.
